More optional return // optional return for if statements def m1() {     if (true) 1     else 0 } assert m1() == 1 // optional return for try/catch/finally def m2(bool) {     try {         if (bool) throw new Exception()         1     } catch (any) { 2 }     finally { 3 } } assert m2(true) == 2 && m2(false) == 1 10 lundi 15 novembre 2010
  • 12. AST Transformation (1/2) • Groovy 1.6 introduced AST Transformations –AST: Abstract Syntax Tree • Ability to change what’s being compiled by the Groovy compiler... at compile time –No runtime impact! –Change the semantics of your programs! Even hijack the Groovy syntax! –Implementing recurring patterns in your code base –Remove boiler-plate code • Two kinds: global and local –triggered by annotations 11 lundi 15 novembre 2010
  • 13. AST Transformations (2/2) • Transformations introduced in 1.6 –@Singleton –@Immutable, @Lazy, @Delegate –@Newify –@Category, @Mixin –@PackageScope –Swing’s @Bindable and @Vetoable –Grape’s own @Grab 12 lundi 15 novembre 2010

  • 48. GContracts • Closures are already allowed in the Groovy 1.7 Antlr grammar –André Steingreß created GContracts, a «design by contract» module // a class invariant @Invariant({ name.size() > 0 && age > ageLimit() }) class Person { String name; int age }   // a method pre‐condition @Requires({ message != null }) void greet(String message) { ... }   // a method post‐condition @Ensures({ returnResult % 2 == 0 }) int evenResult() { ... } 45 lundi 15 novembre 2010

  • 50. Closure memoization • Memoization: remember the outcome of previous (ideally side-effect free) invocations 47 def c = { a, b ‐> sleep 1000; a + b }.memoize() assert c(1, 2) == 3 // after 1000ms assert c(1, 2) == 3 // return immediately   // other forms: // at least 10 invocations cached def cAtLeast = { ... }.memoizeAtLeast(10) // at most 10 invocations cached def cAtMost = { ... }.memoizeAtMost(10) // between 10 and 20 invocations cached def cAtLeast = { ... }.memoizeBetween(10, 20) lundi 15 novembre 2010
  • 51. Closure trampoline • No more infamous StackOvervlow errors for deeply recursive algorithms –if you use closure trampolines explicitely 48 def fact fact = { int n, BigInteger accu ‐>     n > 1 ? fact.curry(n ‐ 1, n * accu) : accu } def factorial = { int n ‐> fact(n, 1) } assert factorial.trampoline(1)    == 1 assert factorial.trampoline(3)    == 6 assert factorial.trampoline(1000) == 402387260077... lundi 15 novembre 2010

URL Routing system (3/3) • Namespace awareness: nice for multitenancy • Capability awareness: for graceful degradation 137 // @cust customer variable could be « acme » post "/@cust/update", forward: "/update.groovy", namespace: { "ns-$cust" } // different destinations depending on the GAE services status get "/speakers", forward { to "/speakers.groovy" // default destination // when the datastore is not available to "/unavailable.gtpl" on DATASTORE not ENABLED // show some maintenance is upcoming to "/speakers.groovy?maintenance=true" on DATASTORE is SCHEDULED_MAINTENANCE } lundi 15 novembre 2010
  • 169. Simple plugin system (1/3) • Gaelyk features a simple plugin system for extending your apps and share commonalities • A plugin lets you –provide additional groovlets and templates –contribute new URL routes –add new categories –define variables in the binding –provide any static content –add new libraries –do any initialization 138 lundi 15 novembre 2010
  • 170. Simple plugin system (2/3) • A plugin is actually just a zip file! –Basically, just a Gaelyk application, minus... • the Groovy / Gaelyk / GAE JARs • the web.xml and appengine-web.xml descriptors –But with a /WEB-INF/plugins/myplugin.groovy descriptor • A plugin must be referenced in /WEB-INF/ plugins.groovy with –install myplugin • shortcut to /WEB-INF/plugins/myplugin.groovy 139 lundi 15 novembre 2010
  • 171. Simple plugin system (3/3) • An example plugin descriptor –/WEB-INF/plugins/jsonPlugin.groovy import net.sf.json.* import net.sf.json.groovy.*   // add new variables in the binding binding { jsonLibVersion = "2.3"          // a simple string variable json = new JsonGroovyBuilder()  // an instance of a class of a 3rd‐party JAR }   // add new routes with the usual routing system format routes { get "/json", forward: "/json.groovy" }   // install a category you've developped categories jsonlib.JsonlibCategory   // any other initialization code you'd need 140 lundi 15 novembre 2010

Summary • Easy access to a cloud solution –Deploying Java apps, as easily as you would with PHP • Familiar to Java folks –Your good old Servlet centric webapps style • Pretty cheap –You need a high-trafficed website to reach the quotas • Gaelyk provides a simplified approach to creating Servlet centric webapps in a productive manner –Leveraging Groovy’s servlet / template support and dynamic capabilities 142 lundi 15 novembre 2010
  • 174. What’s coming next? • Gaelyk 0.5.6 released couple weeks ago with additional URL routing support –capabilities, namespace support • Expect more sugar around the Datastore –An SQL-like query DSL –Easier relationship management (builder) • Perhaps pre-compiled groovlets and templates • Testing facilities specific to Gaelyk • More generally... –Anything that’ll come up in upcoming GAE SDK versions 143 lundi 15 novembre 2010
